what to do with casing
    #4247893 - 06/02/05 02:19 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I've been keeping my 50/50 casing in my terrerium with my other cakes, but the humidity in there is too high to allow pinning. Cased in a tupperware container. could use the lid anyway? any ideas?

I do have an idea!

I keep my martha at 95 RH, and when pinning starts, I drape saran wrap over the casings to prevent aborts.

Right now the surface is over 50% fluffy mycelium, no sign of any pins to come. Is this bad?

To be honest, and I know it isn't the best, I keep my casings and any cakes in the same grow chamber.  The gc is around 98-99% humidity and I have have had no problems with my casings.  Could I do better by adjusting the humidity?  Probably but I have hard time trying to keep it at 90% so I say screw it. 

Give it time and that fluff and those knots will turn into pins.  How many days have you had it in the terrarium?  Casings take days longer then cakes to pin. :mushroom2:

its not bad, but its not good.. if you dont see pins about 11 days after putting it in the FC, thats when I would worry... I think you will still have mushrooms mature from the sides of the casings, even if it doesnt from the top.

future advice is.... introduce it to your FC before you see any signs of mycel on the top casing layer, later, you will want to switch to casings and provide the optimal humidity (82-92) this is when you will get good results from your casings, and each casing will yield as much as 4 cakes will.

Put casing in terrerium 3 days ago with 1/3 myc showing on surface. the myc exploded since in chamber. Are you suggesting i should slide substrate from the container just in case?(just out case hahaha)

Couldn't agree more with this statment.  Cover the casing and let grow for 3 days in the TiT then right into the fruiting chamber regardless of what I see on the surface, which is usually one little spot of growth. 

I think you will be okay but you may get some overlay.  :stoned:
